But a short while back, I saw that Wingstop was coming out with a product called "Gliders," presumably an aviation-themed (as much of their business is) pun on sliders. I thought I should at least give them a try.
The location I went to was selling two Gliders for $4.99. From the picture, it looked like they were going to be the size of my beloved KFC Chicken Littles, the kind of thing that I could eat in one or two bites. Five bucks seemed a pretty high price. But I still ordered them, one with "Cajun" sauce and one with "Hickory Smoked BBQ."
"They will be ready in nine minutes," the girl behind the counter told me.
The sauces smelled good and the bread was the exact kind of bread I like to eat with sandwiches like this: buttery-soft, light rolls, things that won't interfere with the flavors of the sandwich, bread soft enough to be torn apart and used to soak up any excess sauce that may pool in the bottom of the container.
I enjoyed the Gliders much more than I expected to. I have heard from friends - and people who have posted comments here over the years - that the lemon-pepper flavor at Wingstop is great, and I have yet to try that. Maybe one day I will return and try the Gliders with different sauce. But if I don't make it back before they're gone.... well, I won't be too upset.
